Manufacturing for the Rail Industry

Improving efficiency and safety in the Rail Industry are key factors for all companies working in this sector.
There is a huge focus on this industry from the UK Government and the Rail Industry as they invest millions of pounds in rolling stock, infrastructure and the planned new state-owned public body ‘Great British Railways (GBR)’ that will oversee rail transport in Great Britain from 2023.
